1. Apply twice daily to the affected joint. It is recommended that you apply FLEXISEQ in the morning and at night to skin that is clean and dry.   2. Use enough gel to evenly cover the whole joint. For example, when treating the knee, we recommend using a gel length of around 7cm (roughly half the length of the FLEXISEQ 50g tube).   3. It is important to allow FLEXISEQ to dry before covering. Failure to do so may impair the absorption of the product. The gel should dry after no more than 15 minutes. If drying time takes longer, just use a little less next time.

Flexiseq FAQ's
spacer Can I apply Flexiseq directly to my joints?
It should not be applied directly over the bone, but to the soft tissue around it to allow it to penetrate through to the synovial fluid between the bones. It should also be allowed to dry, which may take about 10 minutes. The active component of the gel will only begin to penetrate through the tissues once it has dried on the surface.

How quickly does Flexiseq take to work? The pain relief appears to improve with repeated application. Whilst the manufacturers claim relief can be experienced in as little as 2 days, realistically this would take 2 weeks…but then still continues to improve gradually over 12 weeks. This was seen to be almost comparable to oral celecoxib.

Who should not use it? Anybody with skin lesions or any dermatological conditions in the treatment area should not use Flexiseq as its safety and efficacy has not been tested in such individuals. It should also not be used where they have already been prescribed another topical treatment, such as an NSAID gel.

Is Flexiseq available on prescription?
No. Flexiseq is classed as a medical device and is not included in the relevant section of the Drug Tariff. Therefore cannot be prescribed on NHS prescriptions.
